Facts of the case: In March 1963 and 18 year old girl was kidnapped and physicallyabused near Phoenix Arizona. Police arrested Ernesto Miranda 10 days later for thecrime. Miranda made in oral confession after the victim picked him out of a police lineupand after 2 hours of further questioning. He was found guilty and received a long prisonterm, but the verdict was upheld on appeal to the Arizona Supreme Court because therewas question if the defendant's constitutional rights have been violated by not givingMiranda a lawyer. He did not ask for a lawyer and his attorney and he then asked theUnited States Supreme Court to review the case.Legal steps in the case: The Supreme Court had already begun to concern itself with theextension of Bill of Rights guarantees to State Court trials in the 1964 Escobedo v.Illinois case.oThe USSC ruled that the defendant had been denied his constitutional rights whenhe was denied the right to see an attorney after he confessed. Does the 14thamendment extend the bill of rights?
